If you haven’t already read the first part of our blogger carnival, don’t worry you can catch up with some of our favourite bloggers in part one.

First up lets introduce you to Claire who blogs over at Bad Fiction and is expecting baby number two and longing for a baby moon like she had with her first baby. A short break in the sun before three becomes four is what Claire is hankering after. Have you been on a baby moon?

Another busy mum is Red Rose Mummy who didn’t make it away last year with the arrival of Little Miss and a switch from salary to maternity pay makes it a tough time for many, never more so do people need to make the pounds stretch as far as they can. However some of our deals to the Balearics might see them by the pool in Majorca or Menorca for a week or two this Summer, like this:

Menorca for only £168 – 27% off
Grab a great spring bargain in Menorca for only £168 pp, staying for seven nights at the grade 3 Sa Mirada Apartments. Accommodation is self catering and flights depart from Gatwick on 1stMay.  Book at www.latedeals.co.uk or call 0800 916 5173.

We have loved working with the blogging community over the last few months and we have been reading Nickie, a prolific writer and self proclaimed social media geek, blog I am Typecast avidly. With children who are grown up, growing up and also grand children in tow it is sometimes easier to not go on holiday – swing over and read all about her holiday dreams.

The ongoing coolness of the UK weather as Winter turns into Spring is putting Tunisa, Cyprus and Ibiza on Kate’s short list over at Katie and the kids. Our great Latedeals.co.uk prices could turn those daydreams about summer holidays, sunshine, beaches and sunglasses into a reality.

Cheshire Mum is also a fan of holidays to Majorca and even though she’s a plan ahead type of girl she agrees with us that eight weeks is plenty of time to get ready to get away – we have this fab deal for those like Claire who would like some Majorcan sunshine:

Majorca in May – 14 nights for under £250pp
Stay for 14 nights self catering for only £242 pp at the grade 4 Aparthotel Coma Gran in Sa Coma – 44% saving off original price of £430. Flights depart from Gatwick on 3rd May.

Our Blogger Carnival Round Up (part one)

Our Facebook friends and Twitter followers would be hard pressed not to notice that we have been featured on some great blogs over the last month. The Latedeals.co.uk team have been working with some of our favourite bloggers and asked them to share their thoughts about holidays. We have really enjoyed reading posts about where, when, why and how they have or hope to spend their precious holiday time. So here they are, for your enjoyment, the first of two “blog carnivals” of our bloggers holiday posts.

I’m so cold

It’s freezing cold” echoes across Aimee and Becky‘s blogs and you’re right ladies it is here in the UK – but it isn’t in the Red Sea, Morocco, Tenerife and other popular Winter sun destinations!

Ellen Arniston is wrapped up in a cardi with the heating on whilst pondering the long summer holidays and what her family of five need this year. Have a read, all suggestions welcome – where do you think they should head?

Dreaming of warmer Summer months

Christine over at Thinly Spread is feeling that the warmer Summer months are a very long haul from February. Something which is made only worse by her Facebook newsfeed being filled by Winter sun holiday photos of others – the latedeals.co.uk team nod in agreement to that!

Tired Mummy of Two is also giving serious thought to and planning how to spend the seven weeks of school summer holidays. Seven weeks sounds so  l o n g  doesn’t it?! We hope her daughter is feeling much better and well enough to enjoy a family holiday the time school breaks up.

In the meantime why not play the “Imaginary Holiday” game which Kate who blogs over at Wit Wit Woo explains. We wouldn’t be surprised if the idea catches on across bath times nationwide… then go see if you can find it on Latedeals.co.uk of course 😉

Holidays on the calendar

When was the last time you were spontaneous? Hmm, yes indeed Cat’s post from Yellow Days sparked a question that separated the parents from the child free in the room! We find our Find me the best late deals” tool helps more families put holiday dates on their family calendars.

Jen who writes Mum in the Madhouse talks about how holidays are all about decompressing and having fun as a family, her 2013 calendar is already holiday packed.

On the other hand Mirka from All Baby Advice has space on her calendar for some holidays dates so she can create some more of the beautiful beach photos she took and has shared of previous holidays.

Muslim Mummy and Attachment Mummy are also hankering after a proper holiday luckily we have many great discounts to Egypt and other Red Sea resorts which are on the wish list.

Family holidays

Mama Syder has four children and knows more than a thing or two about holidays on a budget, her tips are a must read for anyone with a larger family.

The Mummy Blogger has her last year of low season holiday opportunities before her daughter starts school in September. The envy of parents across the land, Charlotte is looking for a March getaway. We have some great deals in leaving in March and beyond, including this gem of a deal to Tunisia for only £293 per person, saving 49% leaving from Manchester on 6th March for a seven night all inclusive stay at the 5* Riu Imperial Marhaba Hotel in Port el Kanaoui.

Don’t forget to check back early next week as we have more great reads to share in the second part of the Latedeals.co.uk bloggers holiday carnival.
